Letter To The Editor
Mr. Don Ford, October 1, 1951
McPherson College Spectator.
It was with a great deal of interest that I read your editorial entitled “Congratulations But—I know that most of the 300 students on the campus of the college read that editorial—perhaps it was the first time they have read the editorial column this year. If so, then you at least accomplished that much by your crusading type editorial.
I am not writing you to complain about what you said; for having been the editor of the Spec during my sophomore year, I can appreciate your position in writing about something you feel needs to be rectified on our campus.
However, in your editorial you mentioned that some of the lettermen eligible for membership in the “M Club” refused to join because of certain initiation practices, practices which these men considered wrong and perhaps immoral. I am a member of the club and as yet have never witnesses anything degrading or immoral in the initiation or the club.
Although some of the initiation may seem to be rather childish to the outsider, it is entered into by initiates and members in a spirit of fellowship and comradeship. Sometimes we have gone too far; but if these men have stayed out because they disapprove of the practices of the club, then that is where they have made their mistake. Who ever heard of improving anything or doing anything constructive merely by standing off and criticizing?
I personally had hoped that these men would have joined our organization, for there is always a need for men with ideals. I know we have men in our club who have high ideals and who will be leaders in their communities when they leave college: look at the leaders of the college and church communities now, and you’ll find that these men were constructive in their criticism. And when they saw places in which an improvement was needed they put their leadership and vitality to the wheel and thus brought about the desired improvements.
While editor of the Spectator, I received a great deal of criticism for things I wrote and things I didn't write, but a good friend told me that criticism is the easiest thing in the world to give—some people criticize because they do not know any other way to express themselves.
Frankly I am glad you wrote your editorial, but I still think that “M Club” is part of the community we here ate striving for and that, if the club falls short of the ideals, eligible members think the club should attain then they are in the wrong by staying out of the club. I personally invite them in with the other men of the club to cooperate and help us all to work for a better and more constructive
Sincerely and respectfully yours, Max McAuley.
Innocent Or Guilty?
Flash! Bulletin! Flash! The local police department has picked up that scoundrel who has been taking more than his share of McPherson College Spectators.
The judge says that it will possibly go pretty hard on the girl, but since she is popular on the campus and is known to be usually a dependable, honest person there may be some allowance in her case.
The judge went on to say that he should make an example of this girl to the other students who are taking two or more copies of the Spec or sending some home to their folks. One would think that a paper is incidental, but reports show that each Spec costs five cents, and according to the Business Manager, it is hard enough to have ends meet with the prices on everything rising as they are.
The Editing Staff of the Spectator wishes that all students would cooperate with them and the Student Council in seeing that all students and faculty members get their one copy of the Spec.
Also, the staff asks that if there are any subscribers who failed to get any one of the four editions of the Spec, please notify them and they will mail one out to you.

26 Tour Mexico
Dear Sister Lil:
Here’s that long awaited letter which clues you in on the higher up—this time it’s about that wonderful trip to Mexico which I told you I’d be taking this summer.
Remember Professor Flory? He was our instructor for the trip. They couldn't have picked a bettor guide, nurse, teacher and all around good guy! And speaking of good "guys", the best of Mac went with us, namely Elsa Kurtz, Betty Ann Murrey, Betty Byers, Jake Shaeffer, Mrs. Alice Martin, Harold Fulkerson, Gene Sloan, Velva Wagner, and 18 others, which showed up at the opportune time.
Class was held on Mac campus August 6, 7, and 8. The morning of the 8th we were informed that we could leave for Mexico that afternoon. "Mexico, here we come!" nearly raised the roof.
When we found that we could buy 15 large bananas for 12 cents bananas became dessert for most of us. Soda pop and bananas, you should try it sometime! The next day found us in the markets of Tamazunchale or "Tom and Charlie."
Sunday Is market day and if you want to see how the poorer class of people make their living, just visit the Mexican markets.
August 13th: Everyone piled
in the bus and headed for the center of the city. Here we all paired off into twos or threes. Street markets, leather shops, banks, postoffices and Soars and Roebuck were assigned to the different groups and we started off to see how each functioned in Mexico. All this, as we didn’t try the taxi system, took a lot of walking, and I have never seen such a tired bunch as we twenty-six when we all crawled on the bus that evening.
That night we stayed at Dun-can, Oklahoma.
August 9, was spent in San Antonio, Texas. The main attraction there was the Alamo and San Jose Mission.
On the 10th we arrived at Laredo, Texas, and was that a thrill! You should have seen the cow-boys! You can bet your boots I’m heading for Laredo next summer!
The Rio Grande River was a big disappointment to the whole gang. I guess we expected a large river as shown on the maps, but all there was, or maybe all that we could find was a small creek.
We went through customs that day, too, as well as exchanging our good old U. S. dollars for Mexican pesos. Another “last” was drinking all the water we wanted. We had been warned by the officials that water in Mexico was not too good to drink, so soda pop was one of the main items on our diet while traveling “south of the border."
Monterey. Mexico, was our destination that night. A very romantic supper was eaten by the gang under the palms. The breeze was blowing gently, a very beautiful moon was shining, and music was being softly played in the background. For some odd reason they kept playing "I Get Ideas", and I had mine, yep, right In Laredo. Texas! On August 11, we ate at Victoria, Mexico, in a cafe that has the only ebony wood floor in the world.
We passed the Tropic of Cancer soon after that and hit the tropical jungles which, we found, were very beautiful. Banana trees, pine-apple fields, parrots and other tropical flora and fauna met our astonished respective gazes as we traveled farther and farther Into Central America.
Tasco, the silver capital of the world, was reached on the 14th. On the way there wo stopped at Cuernavaca and saw the cathedral which was started in 1529. Near the cathedral are the Barden Gardens and Guadelupe church. Naturally, we couldn’t go by without seeing them. In Tasco, we visited a Jewelry factory. Everyone found this Interesting as all the work Is done by hand. Here for the first time we went, all twenty six strong, to a Mexican movie.
You should have seen Cortez's palace and the oldest pyramid in Mexico! We saw these on the 15th on our way back to Mexico City.
are open each day. but all are open on special occasions.
Have you ever heard of the cathedral built on a pyramid? Well, we saw it. This church is unique in that it has a television antennae on it!
In Puebla we visited a pottery and onyx factory. It was very interesting to watch the workers mold the clay to the shape they desired.
August 18: We wont out to
the archeological zone of San Juan Teotichuacan. This is the location or the city of pyramids. These pyramids were built hundreds of years ago: no one knows the exact date, but the Indians have many legends about them. San Juan's zone covers an area of eight square miles in a little valley. Half of the pyramids have still to be uncovered. A strange feature of the pyramids is that they are connected by a street appropriately called "The Avenue of the Dead." What a strange feeling to walk down a deserted valley with strange buildings on either side of you!
All of the pyramids were built 15 degrees north of West. You can Bee that these Aztec's were a highly developed people in building, but as far as I can see that was about all. These pyramids were used for their human sacrifices!
We went to church at the Guad-elupe Shrine in Mexico City on the 19th. They have a 100-voice male choir and one of the largest organs any of us had over seen. Gold predominates in the color scheme of the church's interior.
After church we went to the floating gardens. These gardens consist of islands separated by a canal about seven or eight feet deep. Ferns and flowers cover the Islands. The boats are decorated with flowers and are all named after a girl. Musicians in boats will sing to you—If you pay them— and women sell orchid corsages for one dollar along the banks. It takes about two hours to complete the ride.
At four o’clock we went to the bull fights, the national sport of Mexico. These fights are held each Sunday, and six bulls are killed each time.
August 20: We went to the Embassy building and were fortunate to have a conference with William O'Dwyer, the U. S. Ambassador to Mexico. He gave us a 30-minute speech which was very inspiring. The main point of his speech was "Do not call Mexico a backward country, but a new country!"
SCA Sponsors Devotions In Chapel Of Church
Devotions are being held each Monday. Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings 7-7:15 In the Memory Chanel of the college church.
The national palace, cathedral, pawnshops and the Chapultepec castle were on the agenda for the 16th. This castle in Chapultepec was once used as an old Aztec fortress and was later used as the home for Spanish rulers and Mexican presidents. It has now been converted into a national museum. We rode the trolley going hack to our hotel and the electricity went off while we were on it. About 30 minutes elapsed before it came back on again.
Puebla. 100 miles southeast of Mexico City, was our destination for August 17. We stopped at Chalula which is located in a valley and Is composed mainly of 365 churches. Three hundred sixty-three of these churches were built for the Spanish and two for the Indians. Only twenty of them

A copy of last year’s Sept. 15 Spectator painted a rosy picture indeed of the football picture at Macollege when it stated.” Subtract the series with Sterling, and McPherson College would have a losing streak of 24 consecutive games and no non-conference wins since 1941”.
This was the situation as Coach Woodard entered the picture last year.
Oblivious of past records and backed by an enthusiastic group of supporters, his Bulldogs compiled a record of 3 wins against 5 de

Coach Woodard resides at 1223 East Euclid with his wife and four girls.
